Jota looking forward to United clash

Diogo Jota is looking forward to his first game against Manchester United in a Liverpool shirt.

The Portuguese forward missed the goalless draw between the two clubs at Anfield in January because of injury, but will be hoping for a Reds victory at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

“Every game is important but obviously being a Liverpool player, playing against Man United is always a special game – maybe even bigger than other big matches that we have in the Premier League,” Jota told the official site. “So, of course, we are really looking forward [to it] because we know how much it means to the fans as well.

“It will be my first game against them this season for Liverpool. Not just that game, I missed a lot of games unfortunately, so I couldn’t help the team, but now I’m here to help, and on Sunday there’s a big one to come and to help.”

Kick-off is at 4.30pm.
